I'm at home today, because this evening (too early to be able to get there after finishing work), I am going to be fulfilling a lifelong ambition and seeing Massive Attack live in concert! And not just any concert — an anniversary show focusing on the music from their Mezzanine
album. Seeing my favourite band of all time perform the songs from my favourite album of all time is just so amazing. Fifteen-year-old Ronni would be astonished at her good fortune!
As a result of being home, I've been trundling back through my reading page, and come bearing links.
First up, if you, like me, recently watched Russian Doll
and loved it, rachelmanija
has set up a discussion post here
. Spoilers are allowed in the comments.
I really shouldn't sign up for multiple exchanges simultaneously, but the new peakyblindersficexchange
sounds right up my alley. I love
the show, and definitely think we need more fic for this fandom. If you're interested in participating, the various deadlines are there in the Dreamwidth account. It seems to use OR matching, and matches on relationships rather than characters, and my impression is that if you don't see your chosen relationship(s) in the tagset you can request that they be added. Assignments are a 500-word minimum.
If you, like me, adore the 'absolute unit' meme (basically, square sheep), you will also adore bironic
's latest fanvid. I've embedded the Ao3 link below.Squares Are Everywhere

"In awe at the size of this lad. Absolute unit." Or: improbably shaped livestock.
This feels peak millennial, but I discovered this poem, 'The Ex-Girlfriends Are Back From the Wilderness' by Hera Lindsay Bird
via Florence Welch's Instagram account, and I kind of love it. like too much Persephone and not enough underworld…/wearing nothing but an arts degree
. I feel seen.
I hope you're all having wonderful Fridays.
